Nintendo Europe’s announced this morning it’ll release The Last Story in Europe on February 24, more than a year after it launch in Japan. The game, as well as a single-play story, will contain multiplayer modes such as Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Co-op. The Mistwalker title forms a holy trinity of Wii RPGs that have come to Europe within the past year, including Xenoblade Chronicles earlier this year and Pandora’s Tower early next year. All three have seen fan demand for a US release, but only Xenoblade has been confirmed for an American release in April.
Thanks, Nintendo Universe.
